Next for Nehst: pics, series


Larry Meistrich's new Nehst Studios has unveiled its 2008 lineup, including six indie features and four Web/TV series.

The projects set to reach the starting gate first are Priyanka Kumar's dramatic feature "The Flicker's Dance," Wayne Chesler's darkly comic horror film "Fright Fest" and the "Little Rascals"-style Web series "Dribble Kick Throw."

Other features in the pipeline are Sridhar Reddy's India-based martial arts film "The Killing Moon," writer Rene Ashton's road movie "Boy's Name," the gang war actioner "Blood Stripe" and the mining tragedy drama "And One for All."

Planned Web series — which might be developed into TV projects — include the animated superhero serial "National Triumph League" and the college cooking showcase "Cook U."

Most projects were brought to Meistrich through online pitches from, and others were developed from relationships running indie production outfit the Shooting Gallery. One of the latter projects is "Dance," from Steven Beer of GreenbergTraurig.

Nehst's Dana Offenbach will oversee production for the studio.
